Almost every person with any kind of access to electronics plays video games in some shape or form. From Solitaire and Farmville to World of Warcraft and Call of Duty, video games hit with all demographics. However, there are points in most people's lives where a game comes along that turns them from a person that plays video games into a full fledged gamer. Any gamer worth their salt from my generation is gonna start by laying claim to Super Mario Brothers, Battletoads, Chrono Trigger, GoldenEye or even Zero Wing if only to secure O.G. status. They'll probably continue by rattling off their system history, console by console, making sure to wax nostalgic about all the gems featured on them. I'll admit, I've competed in these digital pissing contest a few times but that e-penis measurement, much like its real life counterpart, is wholly self serving. When you get down to a more personal level, most gamers have got to have that one title that made them realize, this isn't just a hobby for me, this is part of my life. And for me it is undoubtedly Metal Gear Solid.
